"He knows what he’s doing and his price is fair. He’s pretty fast. My lawn mower is running fine after the tune up. I understand he’s cheaper than everybody else." I would absolutely use him again in the future if I needed to.

"This place is fabulous. When I dropped off the machine to be worked on they new exactly what had happened and how to fix it. The repairs were completed by the date I was told it" would be ready and the machine works as good as new. I thought the cost of the repair was very reasonable. Not a problem what so ever. I highly recommend Arrow to anyone who needs a lawnmower or other small piece of equipment repaired.

"I spoke with
over the phone about my mower not starting, he said it needed a new carburator, quoted $80-$85 for a new carburator with pickup of lawn mower, that" seemed like a good price to get my mower fixed, he picked it up Saturday, he's closed Sunday and Monday, then on Tuesday morning I called to remind him to bring the old carburator, he said no problem (husband tells me to get all my old parts after repairs on my car why not the mower right) he brought the mower back that Tuesday afternoon, when I asked for the old carburator, he handed me a tiny pin and a round gasket and said these are the parts from rebuilding the carburator, I reminded him he quoted me a new carb for $80-$85, he said "oh no I never said that", a new carb would be $100, even at that I would have opted for a new carb for $15 more because he charged me $85 to rebuild, so much for my new carb, I asked what would cause a carburator to messed up on a new mower, it was working perfect all summer, and he said you can't leave them outside and gas has to be less than a month old, I asked
if the gas was good and he said he didn't see any water in it, I told him the mower was about 1 or 2 years old, hardly used and its always put inside the garage, he unloaded the mower and I had to ask him to start it for me, he started it right up, well I have a running mower so I paid him, several days later I go and try to start my mower and it won't start, I tried like 30 times, same exact problem, I call
and he says its like a car it could be a lot of things and started naming off engine parts like
, pistons and a lot of other mechanical stuff I can't remember, and said he could pick it back up and look at it, and said something about the carburetor, I told him I could not afford him to replace any of that stuff he told me, and would rather spend money on a new mower, he wanted to charge me to look at it again, he didn't even offer to look at to see if he had missed anything or to stand behind his work. I really don't like leaving a bad review for anybody, especially after they know were I live, and my husband being deployed, but the fact are the facts. My husband is a automotive master mechanic, that is deployed overseas serving our country, but will be home soon, thats why my husband subscribed to Angies list, for me to find reputable businesses so I wouldn't be taken advantage of while he's away and to share with other Angies list subscribers so we all find the best services. I didn't want bother my husband with all this being were he's at, but after all this he had some really good question everyone should know and ask them selves when getting things repaired. 1. How can you correctly quote a price for a repair over the phone without knowing what the problem really is, like
said it could be lots of things. 2. Say it is the carburator how do you know which carb to quote a price for without the brand, model and serial number. Google lawn mower carburetors, they range from $20 to over $200, There are hundreds if not thousands of mowers out there on the
, my husband has repaired landscaping equipment before and the parts supplier always needs the brand of the equipment, model number and almost always the serial number, just like at auto zone for your car, or parts to fix your
, washer, dryer or refrigerator, he just replaced the switch on his tactical flash light, and the manufacturer needed the model number and serial number,and thats just for a flash light on off switch. 3.Get your old parts from any repairs you have done, there yours, you paid for them originally and the new ones also, ask questions, where is the part located? how does it work? what went wrong with yours compared to the new one, take the old part apart and look it over if you want its already broken, your paying for there services why not learn a little about whats being done. 4. Get estimates in writing, if its going to cost more or theres a change in the work being done, like a rebuild instead of a new carburator, a
phone call or email to you for approval should be easy to make.

Lawn mower repair

The average suburban lawn mower is a true workhorse, but you might not be maintaining it as well as you should. Here are some practical tips on troubleshooting common problems, how to make some lawn mower repairs yourself and how to maintain your mower so it keeps performing well year after year.

Experts in lawn mower maintenance say there’s a fix for common issues, but major problems often cost more to repair than buying a new lawn mower.

The only time a carburator needs replacing is if you put some really corrosive cleaner in it that ate through the metal (usually aluminum), or if you have physically broken it.

Otherwise, carbs can be rebuilt - rebuild kits (that contain basically all the non-metallic parts, the primer bulb (usually) and carb gaskets) typically run $10-25. A tuneup (carb rebuild and new spark plug) with parts typically runs about $60-80 ($100-150 for rider mowers), although a lot of repair shops have $45-60 spring specials. Probably needs a sharpening too - another $10-15 or so when done as part of a tune-up.

By hiring someone to do it, I presume you mean taking it to a small engine repair shop with a good word of mouth reputation, and being sure to get a dropoff receipt and estimate in writing that you carry away with you.

If it runs at all, or ran last fall, this is probably all you need.

Compare this to the cost of a new mower - for a rider mower, no comparison of course - go with the carb cleaning and rebuild. However, for a standard 20-22 inch push power mower, replacement cost is about $140-250, depending on whether you go with a Walmart special or brand name, additional $100 or so if self-propelled or bagging type.

For a 10 year old push type power mower, if it sits outside all winter or is pretty rusty, since you are not mechanically inclined I would recommend getting a new mower - something like a Sears or Murray Ohio (at Target, WalMart, etc) plain-jane mower for about $150-180 unless you have steep hills or medical issues, then get the self-propelled model. A 20 inch or even 18 inch will do fine for a small lawn; if you have several lawns or a pretty big lawn area (over say 2500 SF) then you probably want a 22 inch - the extra path width makes quite a difference in how long it takes to mow.

If it sleeps in a shed or garage and is not rusting out, I would recommend a new one if the plain jane will do it for you, otherwise if the replacement one that you would buy is over about $250 I would go with the carb overhaul and tuneup.

I would STRONGLY recommend you get a 4 cycle engine - I swear by Briggs and Stratton rather than Tecumseh or other brands. 4 cycles start much easier and are less sensitive to fuel/air mix issues, and the plugs stay clean a lot longer. 2 cycles are lighter for the same horsepower which is why you see them a lot in outboard motors that are less than about 50-80 HP and in small generators and motorcycles, but they are a lot more tempermental about starting, especially in cold weather or after a long storage.

If you pay attention to proper winter storage procedure, rebuilding the carb on the old one should last you another 5+ years. I have a Murray Ohio with 4 cycle Briggs and Stratton engine that is 33 years old, lives in an unheated shed in a northern state, and has had nothing more than annual blade sharpening, oil change every few years, and one carb overhaul and plug cleaning (and ZERO new spark plugs) in its life, and starts by second pull every spring. The key is if you store it inside in a garage to run it dry each fall (so you do not have gas in the garage, for safety reasons in case it leaks out); if you leave it outside I fill the tank to the top so moisture cannot acccumulate from moist air "breathing" in and out of the tank due to temperature changes. I do this with mower, chain saw, leaf blower, weed wacker - all start on first or second pull in the spring (and throughout the summer). If you live in an area with a lot of moisture in the winter air (ours is very dry) you might have to add Heet or Sta-Bil to the fuel can (per instructions) before topping off tank.

You will find other people who say you HAVE to run it dry each season. Their theory is that if there is no gas in it then there is no gas to collect moisture or to evaporate and turn to varnish over the winter (though that generally takes a few years of sitting to happen). My theory is if it is filled with fuel it cannot dry out and leave varnish residue to block the fuel tube screen and fuel jets, plus it does not rust metal fuel tanks by being empty. To each their own procedure.

?

No personal experience on rider mowers but some with small rider tractors, but since you have gotten no response in 5 days, here is my 2 cents worth:

 

1) read the Consumer Reports and JD Powers reviews on rider mowers

 

2) from what neighbors have told me, TroyBilt are maintenance problem and not built very rugged, Sears tend to have transmission/drive train problems, those with John Deere say they were unhappy with the price but they run well and don't have extreme maintenance costs - so sounds to me like JD is best brand out there right now.

 

3) A recommendation also from personal small engine experience and neighbors - stay with Briggs and Stratton 4 cycle engines if possible, and stay away from 2 cycle engines - they are lighter and cheaper, but have a LOT more starting problems and tend to not last as long.

was very professional. He took the time to listen to my concerns and changed the spark plug while I was there. He said it would take 2 days and I was Shocked that I received a call the NEXT day :). I went to a competitor last year and it took 1 week so I was thrilled!!! I will definitely go back to

I was very pleased with
Boston Lawn Mower Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
. He responded promptly to my email requesting service, and we made an appointment at a convenient time. He arrived promptly for the appointment. My string trimmer is several years old and had never been serviced. It had been running fine until recently, then it would start, but not stay running.

did the work at my house. He replaced the fuel filter and spark plug, and cleaned the carburetor. After the service the trimmer started and ran fine.
I used it for about an hour without any problems, but then a problem running at high rpms. I called

and he came back. This time he cleaned the exhaust spark arrester which fixed the second problem. Even though this second problem was not related to my original problem,

charged me nothing for this second service. It was not a problem I had mentioned to

, nor did he experience it while performing the first service.I would have been willing to pay for the second service, since I don't think the problem was in any way related to the work

had already performed.
I was very happy with

. He was prompt and friendly. He provided excellent service, and it was very convenient to have the work done at home, rather than having to take the trimmer somewhere. I will definitely use

They were WONDERFUL!! The day of the pick up it stormed, and there was a great deal of flooding and closed roads in the area, I really thought they would have to reschedule the pick-up time. He was there on time, and wasn't phased at all about the weather. :) They kept me informed on the progress, and delivered it to my backyard, putting the receipt where I would find it. (I had told them it was OK to leave it in back, I couldn't get off work). They locked the gate on the way out. Great service and will recommend!!

responded quickly and answered all questions.
We arranged for a pick up at my home and he showed up as planned.
The srop off went the same way and my machine was in good working order.
The costs were the same as the estimate and all was fine with me.
I will surely use him again!

He came on time, worked out of his very clean truck, and did the job in a little over an hour. So nice not to have to try to transport these two machines to a repair shop ourselves!

I called last Thursday to make an appointment and the woman who answered the phone said they would be in my area on Wednesday, so I scheduled it. I left the snow

outside in the driveway as instructed. I knew last winter it had been making a sound like it was laboring so I wasn't surprised when he said the carburetor needed to be replaced. After about 45 minutes it sounded good as new. Without the physical shop overhead, their prices seem pretty hard to beat. They had the carburetor and tools in the trailer so the only real difference is the snow
